The Constitutional Empire of Stelmund is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Władysław II Bonaparte with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 1.203 billion Stelmundians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de Stelmund. The average income tax rate is 23.9%.

The all-consuming Stelmundian economy, worth 139 trillion Stelms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,193 Stelms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Binoculars sales are at an all-time high, students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, nations across the world are quick to praise Władysław II Bonaparte's good looks and intellectual prowess, and Roman Catholicism has been named as Stelmund's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Stelmund's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Stelmund is ranked 29,409th in the world and 20th in Carcassonne for Smartest Citizens, with 49.81 quips per hour.
